The Dyslexic, Prophetic and it's Attendant Diametrics.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

(back at Smoking Mirrors to start the rotation again. It's easier this way in my head and we have to consider that (grin)).

Let's stay on that theme about all these predictions and prophecies. This might curtail my heavy hand of late, upon Public Enemy One. Make no mistake, there is a Public Enemy Number One and it's got a posse; a crew, gun molls and the whole nine meters, which turns out to be more than the whole nine yards. The members of the inner posse, the mob captains, control virtual armies. These captains are ignorance; greed, fear, arrogance, denial and assorted. They control the actions and consciousness of the public, which they possess through the agency of what they represent but we're not going to talk about them today. We'll leave them to plot their own destruction through assaulting Iran and unleashing the sleeping bear, the crouching tiger and the Karachi Boys so... moving right along and not talking about them, let's get on to the dyslexic, prophetic and it's attendant diametrics, as everything looks in the mirror and sees itself; just like the animals at the watering hole and determines what God and man is accordingly; the lion sees a lion, the snake sees a snake, the deer sees a deer and no one sees what really is because their mask is looking back at them. Are you with me so far? Can I get a hostess! I just need someone to show me the way to my table at The Algonquin. I used to be a famous writer before they outlawed fame in conjunction with truth. You know, these days, even people who profess to love and admire the truth, get uneasy when the truth comes on too strong. Wait till you run into it with its sunglasses off and no filters. Personal run ins with the truth can be surprising, disarming and scary.

It's best to get to know the truth socially; have a couple/few beers with the truth. A lot of people are ashamed to be seen with the truth. That's never a good idea. Conversely the truth might find itself ashamed to be seen with you and that's never a good idea either. It is especially a bad idea if you are an artist of any kind because there's a little thing called 'inspiration' that can get lost in the translation as you attempt to bend it to the demands of the marketplace. An artist without inspiration is like a Shirley Temple in Rio at carnival time. Think about it, it will come to you.. Well, you wind up impotent in a reverse kind of a way according to what Shakespeare said about alcohol provoking the desire but hampering the performance. We're talking about another kind of drink here and another kind of intoxication. This attends inspiration and communion, depending on what inspires you and who you commune with. Now, if you're communing with the people who run the closed shop that won't let truth behind the velvet ropes, you get what comes with the territory.

A lot of these things don't seem real to people, or they are inconvenient, so the mind, devoid of inspiration, concerning various enduring truths, delivers itself into the hands of its greatest enemy. It sells itself out for a mess of potage but, I guess that's okay cause you get to wear a beret and hang out with the white wine and cheese crowd. You get to hobnob with the kind of people you meet in the hot-tubs at hotels in Hawaii and in the clubhouses at golf courses, yum yum and then some; wife swapping included at no extra charge and a Get Into Hell Free card; kind of makes you wet and willing eh?

Well, we were going to talk about all these prophecies and predictions. I guess I'll get hammered again for my first reference but... as to the matter of Dr. Chiappalone, I'd do a cursory web search. I'm not saying 'yea' or 'nay' about the matter because I don't know but what I do know is my reaction to the predictions of the good doctor. They are the most depressing read I have come across in a long time. According to the good doctor we are all dead and doomed and it won't be long. No one is going to be left on the planet because Gaia is going to scour the Earth and it's to be curtains, period. I don't buy this version. I don't buy any of this total doomsday business. I'm not saying that there may not be half the population gone, or that entire countries may not encounter near total devastation. I don''t know what the outcome will be and no one else does either and you just wind up depressing yourself by contemplation of what ifs.

If we go back to earlier prophets in the revisionist scriptures, Nostrildamus, Mother Shipton, whose elegant verse, adds a compelling dimension to what she has to say; when you go back you hear all kinds of things too. Most of them are heavily allegorical and opaque. You got Ecclesiastes, with his cycles and permanent rotation of the vanity of man, meeting up with cosmic resolution. I buy that as a recurrent model, specifically attuned to Kali Yuga but also relevant in general, whenever and wherever the pomposity and excess of the dark, insipid and superficial mindset of material nature may dwell.

As I've said before, there are those who are prone to see all of this as a mathematical process. Some even see it as random, which I consider mindblowing, considering that hard fact physicists have announced that the universe is thought born and everything is composed of mindstuff. I'll say no more about the endless argument, which really centers around the perversions of religion, as opposed to what may or may not be out there and in there. I believe it is all mathematical as well as conscious. I believe it all makes sense, once you switch off the rational mind. Of course, I have direct contact and a collection of supernatural experiences the size of a James Minchner book, so, that's me.

Let's suppose like most people, you haven't had truth as a house-guest or been round to the local for a few pints with the truth. Most people have to make arrangements to get by here, or think they do. See, there's this gap that exists between your fear and reality. It could be a simple step across, or it could be so wide that it has no other side but it's only as wide as your fear. In order to get a certain process to work, you have to take it on its terms and that means you are going to be subjected to uncertainty. How great a hold uncertainty may take on you is an individual affair. This gets measured against what and who you feel responsible for and what you are afraid to lose. Some of us are lucky enough to lose everything, relatively speaking, more than once, so we're familiar with the territory. Some of us are holding on to things that sink, so tightly that we go down with the ship; be it an actual ship, a ship of state or a ship of goods and treasures trying to get across the Spanish Main.

Some people are overly concerned with so called Nephilim, reptiles, grays and other aliens, Illuminati, Masons and a shitload of groups and types. For those head-deep into this kind of thing, it must be a lot like living in some multicultural urban landscape, where there's another street gang on every following block. Are they all working together? Are they independents? Is the Trilateral Commission worse than The Council on Foreign Relations; The Club of Rome, the Committee of 300, the Bilderberger etc? Are the feminists in bed with the gay agenda (grin)? After all, they've both got the same type and personality directive behind them. Does the Pope shit in the woods or in one of his funny hats? Are The Jesuits the official bad guys, even though the other bad guys predate them by more than a thousand years? Are The Rockefellers worse than The Rothschilds? Is Rio Tinto more user friendly than Standard Oil? Do they work together, or are they enemies at some level? Who does Little Georgie Sorrows work for, besides the dark lord and his own selfish interests?

There's so much complexity here and I doubt that anyone has gained leverage, as a result of being really well informed about any of it. In the end, it comes down to what you can do about it and whether or not you are right in the first place. They got all that power. It's how it looks. Do you have any power? Some would say yes and some would say no. A lot of people think they got a lot of power because they live in a small pond. People rely on all kinds of things for the maintenance and perpetuation of power and influence and nearly every one of them is temporary, as are they.

As I have painstakingly been at pains to state, I don't know what's going to happen. In some cases I don't know what is happening or what already happened. I know I have questions but not about things I consider important and that's the important thing.

What I do know is that civilization has not measurably improved since the time when there wasn't any. The brutality and indifference factor has pretty much stayed the same and I don't see much difference between the elite in Apocalypto and the ones we have, except that the ones we have now are pissed off about Mel Gibson and Mel might not have been around for the other.

Yeah, I guess some of us won't be getting to The Algonquin this time around. The new doorman was working a security detail in Columbia last week but the same people are still paying his salary now, so it's only about location, location, location. We know that what probably happened was an assassination attempt gone wrong. All of those things are going wrong these days, which is pretty right on. As has been stated here many times, things are going to go seriously south for the bad guys. It's not good for our general health to go mentally south, as a result of their last gasp, death rattle.

Maybe I'm overly optimistic. I know there are monsters, but like “Monsters Inc”, it's your fear that accounts for their 'relative' size and degree of effect on you. Some people have no choice but to believe things that make it possible for them to wind up in Iraq and Afghanistan, or a cubicle in a law office, or anywhere people wind up, where they have justified their reasons for being there. The real danger you face is what you've made real in your head, whatever that may be. Give the truth a call. Invite it out for dinner and drinks. Have it over for the weekend or longer. Make the truth a permanent house guest and the walls of the citadel won't collapse around you.


Selah!

Wonderful Vis-thanks for the truth full reminder and LOL humor--really needed this good medicine today.

You are refreshingly an original-quirks, warts and all which reminds me of my retort to an ex when he said I was a real piece of work..."I know; a masterpiece ta da" (grin) I don't think he appreciated the tongue in cheek rejection of his insult but I sure did ;-)

Anyway, grateful for the Grace~Be Well~Namaste...jo

Hi Les,

I believe the truth is at hand for all of humanity. The only truth is inside of all of us. Once you truly find the one thing that resides in all humans at the center of the universe which also resides in the same place as the heart, and that is Love. The light that connects everything out there.

The rest of what lies inside this veil of darkness will soon evaporate. It is human destiny. The source of all creation meant it to be this way, from darkness into the light! As above, so below, a oneness with ones self, and the greater whole.

Once you get past fear, and let the heart lead you the way as it shall be in the future, the knowledge of the universe will be at your doorstep.

As we enter the galactic plane, Gaia is preparing for a rebirthing of herself and the human race. God intended it so.

The energy from this alignment will be so profound, those who are ready will be in for quite a journey!

There really is no reason to worry...one need merely to say the right things, nod and smile when the right topics are discussed, in the company of the right types of folks...and one can reasonably stay under the radar....

Does it even matter to point out the rat fest going on in the rats nest? Does it make any difference to even call a spade, a spade anymore?

Those with the guns and bombs and bullets know that there are far more of "we" than "they"...to continue in the lies and slaughter of the innocent, they must have you convinced that you must fear their guns and bombs and bullets...and cages...

They are relying on the citizenry looning out this year especially...they are preparing for it as we speak...but none of this matters...

There is not one natural or karmic cycle that I can stand a'gainst and be successful or triumphant....If the world is to go down the shitter, then this is what shall be....if we are all to be transformed into powerful beings of light to eradicate those who would see us harmed, killed, or imprisoned...then let that happen as well....

It can only go so far, you know....anything.

Vis, All,

Wow... major super resonance here. And again, I'm reminded of something I read in the Bible:

Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

I have in previous comments posted my belief that the three and a half years of Jesus' earthly ministry was a "type and shadow", a parallel so to speak, of what we might see as this current age passes away. (Jesus was introducing a new age while ushering out the previous age... though it wasn't like turning a switch, it took about a full generation.)

And so I wonder, but don't know, if we are experiencing the same now... the truth is very very difficult to recognize, unless the Divine opens your eyes and your ears. One example, again using the ministry of Jesus, was that Pontius Pilate asked the Christ, "What is truth?" And this while looking at the very manifestation of Truth.

I believe that once one's eyes/ears have been opened by the Divine, the truth resonates... it resonates and it liberates.

For those whose eyes/ears have not been opened, the truth is frightening; it brings discord and unbalance.

I remain optimistic as well; I know and trust the Author of any and all events that have occurred and will occur. I also know that no event occurs outside this Author's purpose and that purpose is perfect.

I do not know whether I and my loved ones will survive whatever might be coming... however, that does not concern me.

Nevertheless, I believe that not only shall we survive but that we shall thrive. I also believe that we will be offered a role in the healing that will take place once this current age has passed.

Vis & all the best to the rest,

I have been having some amazing 'downloads' and instant feedback from the Truth. 

A few weeks ago I was on my small back deck that has the forest behind it and it is a steep hill. 

I was looking up at the heavens; processing some 'downloads' and I asked them to send me a 'sign' that what I was getting was going to happen soon. 
About 10 minutes later when I came back to my spot I heard a rustling in a big wild rose bush that is right by the deck.  It was a mama bear and I believe at least one cub having the rose bush for a snack. 
We in the hills know that you don't get between any mama bear and her offspring. 
They made a few hissing noises and up the trail they went. 
I was not more than 5 feet away from them when I came back to the deck and they might have been there when I asked for the sign.  
It was scary for a few moments but everything really gelled beautifully when I realized it was a perfect answer to my 'test'.

Things like this make it so much easier to endure the coming demostrations. 

Thanks Vis, great post. 
 
Love to All,
dw in the Tahoe forest

was going to post this at origami but smoking mirrors will do.

Clarity, clear as day as always.

Many in mainstream Christianity view Edgar Cayce as a false prophet and a demon possessed beast. Me, I don't know the man and have read little or nothing concerning him or his prophetic utterances or where he obtained them. Clarity, I agree with your assessment of prophecy over at origami. I'm thinking of the prophet Jonah and the word given to him by God about Nineveh. Nineveh repented and God relented. What happened to Nineveh after that is another story and I don't know it. The point being, I believe, is that God does nothing without first telling his prophets and as you pointed out "for this reason, a successful prophecy is one that has been averted [by following God's command] and therefore does not happen." [my emphases]
Of course, the old devil has his prophets too, or so they say; and considering he is supposed to be the adversary, it is not hard to imagine the rain of confusion and disinformation that prevails in these strange days. There are wars and rumours of wars, strange signs in the land and so on. It is my firm belief that something is on the horizon. This new awakening, or consciousness shift, seems to be the most prevalent prophecy concerning our time. There are many variations of the same prophecy and even a few catholic/Christian variations of the same sort. I hastate to say it but, I assume that Les and people, of like mind, are awaiting some sort of full blown Kundalini download that will awaken the different Chakra and transform/transport them physical, mental and spiritual into the next stage of human evolution. This is one way and the other is like it. The problem for me, coming from the Christian tradition, is the serpent seed thingy where the serpent winds its way up through the different Chakra to the point of completion where it unites the whole and this is where the awakening comes in. Well, you know how us Christians feel about serpents and all. There is a new teaching doing the rounds that says we are half-human half-serpent. (see the sons of God for more detail) this new teaching says that the man half is subject to the serpent half and that Christ's mission was to rectify the DNA change that accrued. Basically, it says that the serpent half must be subjected or both halves burn in hell, so you can see the Christian dilemma. The Christian version of the awakening sees the end of the serpent (mans lower nature) thus the man is freed to love and serve the one true God, or something like that. To give a full-blown account would take a book. The fruit of the tree of good and evil. Adam and Eve in the garden with the serpent. The sons of god mixing with the daughters of men. Who knows what's going on in the dark places. All I know is that I want Christ to awaken me. The thoughts of the serpent crawling up my back and taking full control, physical, mental and spiritual gives me the chills. Maybe it's all the same thing but just seen from a different angle/view. Christ, shine the light of your spirit on us and guide us all in the way of love. Amen.

Ps, sorry Les if I got that wrong.

Thanks once again Visible for sharing with us your gifts and insight. I always take away something new and thought provoking from them.

Fortunately I find myself beyond the fear stage for the most part, except perhaps at the most primal level. I'm too pissed off and despairing to be afraid; might have something to do with it. Not much room left in the emotional warehouse for fear.

Apocalypto was one bad ass movie. Don't think I've ever seen so much beauty and horror in one movie. Leave it to Mel. It was excellent, just not for the faint of heart. Blood sacrifice and all.

Lots of love, Peaches

vis, a passage from
COWARDICE OF THE IRRELIGIOUS
George Bernard Shaw

Another observation I had made was that goodnatured unambitious men are
cowards when they have no religion. They are dominated and exploited not
only by greedy and often half-witted and half-alive weaklings who will
do anything for cigars, champagne, motor cars, and the more childish and
selfish uses of money, but by able and sound administrators who can do
nothing else with them than dominate and exploit them. Government and
exploitation become synonymous under such circumstances; and the world
is finally ruled by the childish, the brigands, and the blackguards.
Those who refuse to stand in with them are persecuted and occasionally
executed when they give any trouble to the exploiters. They fall into
poverty when they lack lucrative specific talents. At the present moment
one half of Europe, having knocked the other half down, is trying to
kick it to death, and may succeed: a procedure which is, logically,
sound Neo-Darwinism. And the goodnatured majority are looking on
in helpless horror, or allowing themselves to be persuaded by the
newspapers of their exploiters that the kicking is not only a sound
commercial investment, but an act of divine justice of which they are
the ardent instruments.
-

Tozan Ryokai [Tung-shan Liang-chieh] (807-869) (quoting

The body of reality is perfectly quiescent while giving the appearance of going and coming. The thousand sages are from the same source, myriad awarenesses are ultimately one. I am now a bubble bursting - what's the use of sadness? Don't trouble your minds; just maintain complete awareness.

thank you for a confluence of bubbles live long

Everyone always says that this one is the big one, or the last one, or the next one. Every time, over and over, that jewel in the heart.

It is always like this, now some have to stick around yet again to help out, you know. I don't know why so many hate humanity for the waiting this out, it's not like they have different original instructions from the Creator.

Maybe they got bored waiting for everything, I don't know.

They won't do much more than stare at this, lately, I think they need a vacation.

Hi Vis
I should read the comments more thoroughly because I missed the references to Dr Chiappalone so I've had to do a bit of a catch up.
For those stationed in the Northern Hemisphere, the good doctor lives in a town called Warwick in the Australian state of Queensland.
The folks in that part of the world are, how can I put it, kind of rural. Backwoods, if you know what I mean.
The kind of place where you can still get a good argument going about the historical truth of the Book of Genesis.
Queensland is the kind of place that doesn't use daylight saving in summer because they're afraid the extra hour of daylight will fade the curtains. So people flying in from out of state are advised to turn their watches back one hour and 20 years.
So I'd take the good Dr S and his prophecies with a grain of salt or a stick or licorice.
Like you I'm more a fan of Mother Shipton and Ecclesiastes. Now that's prophecy for the afficionado.
But if you're going to go on about prophecies and the end of the world you really can't go past this guy:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cjRGee5ipM
"The planet's not going anywhere ... WE ARE! Pack your shit folks, we're goin' away." And so on.
The world is a less fun place without George and it behooves us to keep a sense of humour about all this.
Remember it's only a tragedy when it's happening to you.
Regards
Darius

Thank you for Smoking Mirrors Visible, it is a veritable oasis of truth in a desert of zio-corporate lies.

Mantiq al Tayr is bannishing Ron Paul for kow-towing to israeli capital city concerns and for supposedly being co-opted by Romney. But is it true?

What is true is that Obama and Romney are just different coloured zio-corporate puppets so that EITHER of those two israel-firster assclowns will be the final death of The United States of America. It's tomb stone could read: 1776-2001 R.I.P.

Not sure if there is any way back to normality for the U.S.A. even now from the Russian-like gulag police state now fully in place repleat with FEMA extermination camps. One fact is certain, if either Obama or Romney get the helm puppet job it is undertaker time not only for the U.S.A. but for the whole world.

Doom and gloom? Perhaps, but to ignore the facts at hand is outright denial. A world political/social/spiritual reformation of astronomic proportions is acutely needed to turn this Titanic around - that is if the iceberg hasn't already been hit (9/11?).

Blogs like yours, Truthseeker, Rense, WRH, Kenny's Sideshow and a handful of others are trying to sound the ship's emergency bell but most of the passengers can't hear it because of the loud music playing in the ship's dancehall.

Perhaps the thermonuclear rearranging of the deck chairs is the only thing left.

The bell of truth, freedom and liberty must be rung at every opportunity because this is a real life may-day situation for Gaia and her inhabitants.

Hi Les and Friends,

I sat down you with for lunch here in Berlin, a toasted swiss cheese sandwich and a glass of milk, and laughed so deeply at a number of junctures in yoiur latest that I felt an instant soul connection. Really Les, you are tremendous. I have come to the same conclusion after following the thread and feeling lost in the Labyrinth. I labor in the vineyard and cast the odd seed out there for seekers. The Günther Grass imbroglio here was nauseating. No one could kowtow deep enough - as the innocents in Gaza (who Grass never mentioned) continue being served up to the Dark Lord. Everyone I speak to, even in the system mind you, can't wait for the Collapse to come quick enough. This Age is over. Good riddance, and plenty of laughs I hope watching it go out as those that have believed in it try to keep it upright. Here's an amen for Truth, a fine and sultry lass and solid friend in unsteady Times. With much Love A German Farmer

The Secret Script

Every thought you’ve scattered, Is
gathered in a heap
Within some greater form
Remains there incomplete

And every seed you’ve gathered, Is
every thought you’ve lost
Beyond your greater measure
Beyond your minor cost

If I were you, I’d
not ignore, Your
wording of the script
For how you theme
Your nascent scheme
Is how the scene is writ

It’s written on small pages
Upon some dusty shelf
An ancient book by someone
The writers of yourself

And every dream you’ve shattered, Is
Every dream you'll seek
Within the tides of time
Upon the greater sea

And all your lives are nothing more, Than
all the lives you’ve lost, You
write upon the pages
Regardless of the cost

And all the peace you've wished for, Is
all the peace you’ve blest. It’s
quiet in its waiting
So quiet and in rest

And all your sweet desire, Is
every day complete. It’s
scattered by the wind, Then
gathered to the sea

It’s written on small pages
It’s written in your hand
Written in fine letters
Beyond the tides of man

Brilliant post, Les! And I actually lol-ed when I got to the Pope's hat line. Nuthin like a good belly laugh to ease the seriousness of the global situation. I'd've loved to laugh at the Algonquin with Dorothy Parker and the probably very wry Tallulah Bankhead.

Somewhere while researching info on Lilith as the Dark Moon (in astrology) and Kali Yuga, and the Hopi Red Kachina...I ran across this quote by Arthur Schopenhauer:

"All Truth passes through 3 stages:
First, it is ridiculed;
Second, it is violently opposed;
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

Later, (because a friend is doing a paper on Black and White & is reading this) I found the following quote from James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time (line from a negro spiritual called "Mary, Don't You Weep"--"God gave Noah the rainbow sign, No more water, the fire next time!") --

"Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, the only fact we have. It seems to me that one might rejoice in the fact of death--ought to decide, indeed, to earn one's death by confronting with passion the conundrum of life."

Zen koan:
"After Ecstasy, the Laundry." --

...and a nod is as good as a wink, to a blind horse...

You know Les, I figure some horrible shit was done to you in your day. Which explains why you are this way. I sympathize with you, because since age three (a toddler in America), the earliest I can remember the U.S. government conducted torture of my mind, body and soul I have been going through the same. I think your Illuminati Les, which means you aren't so bad then. Your ultimately goal is to end the evil in this world. That evil, is America and all in it. You are right, we should be on the same side and should support each other. I just want to thank the Illuminati and yourself for shedding light on who, what and how these horrible things occured to me. And it was all for nothing. America is bad, and has to go. There is no forgiveness, redemption, mercy or love any of the stuff that goes on here in the New Babylon, the New Rome. As the old Babylon was destroyed by Persians, as the old Rome was destroyed by Turks, as Ghengis Khan destroyed every evil on the Earth during is his time, the Illuminati will do the same, and a New World and human union will be able to inherit the Earth and continue with a clean slate. The price of this is America. You know this if you truly are a part of the divine. I know this. Good luck to you and the Illuminati, I can assure you I will not intervene for America or Americans. All this is going to happen, and being who I am, I am not going to stop the catharsis of the human race and the Earth. America will have to go along with all in it. Take care Les.
